San Francisco proposal would allow lawsuits over grocery store closures


Recommended Posts

A San Francisco lawmaker introduced a proposal that would require grocery stores in the city to provide six months of notice before closing a store and to explore a replacement supermarket at the vacated location.


Dean Preston, a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, introduced what he calls the Grocery Protection Act – which is based on a proposal the board approved in 1984 that was vetoed by then-San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein. 

Preston's proposal would require grocery store owners to provide six months written notice to the Board of Supervisors as well as the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD). The store would also be required to post notices at all entries and exits as a means of informing customers and the general public. The rule wouldn't preclude closures due to a store being unprofitable.:snip:

After driving grocery stores out of business with leftist crime-coddling policies, Democrats now want to sue the bereft owners whose lives they've destroyed.

I saw a couple comments on this story:

1. The law says they have to stay open.  It doesn't say they have to restock.  Once the inventory is down to a couple cans of lima beans and a bar of soap, the store can get by with just a clerk to open/close.
2. Expect a mass wave of closures before the law can take effect.
